  1. In a deep, heavy-bottomed skillet, heat the oil on medium for frying.

  2. Preheat the oven to 300 degrees F.

  3. Add Panko breadcrumbs into a bowl and to this, add cayenne, paprika, chipotle chili powder, black pepper, and mix together. Add salt to taste.

  4. In another bowl, combine all-purpose flour, water, cayenne, paprika, chipotle chili powder, black pepper, and Texas Pete Hot Sauce to create a batter.

  5. Dip the 1″ to 2″ cauliflower florets into the all-purpose-flour mixture first, and then dip them into the bread crumb mixture, ensuring all florets are covered completely.

  6. Fry cauliflower florets slices until golden-brown. Place them on a plate lined with a paper towel to soak up the oil, then place them on a baking sheet with parchment paper.

  7. Drizzle the 1 cup of Texas Pete Hot Sauce onto the cauliflower wings. Bake for 7 minutes while heating tortillas.

  8. Assemble by spreading homemade ranch in the middle of the tortilla and then placing 3 to 4 cauliflower wings onto the tortilla. Add lettuce, red cabbage, avocado slices, cilantro, lime, cheese, and more hot sauce. Serve.
